Subject: Three distinct peaks
The 5th RCMH and the 22nd of 3sF80. Each set has a nice peak section. The sources are AUD-only - for now, presumably the SBD/Multis are in the vault. The ace Friend of the Devil has been dogeared by some lists and the complete version used to show up as filler. There are a few more aces to the show.
First Set. The acoustic set starts with its peak. I've Been All Around this World may be the best version of the 12. It's up and down from there. They lose the tempo on Monkey & the Engineer (which used to annoy me on the album), and in Rosa Lee McFall Garcia repeats a verse and misses two. There's a Country Gardens/Shave & a Haircut tuning (which Bobby calls the world's finest music) and then a strong finish, particularly On the Road Again and Bird Song.
Second Set. A creaky Alabama has muffed verses but then there's a super-hot Greatest Story and Friend. The latter has 4 edits on the official release: the intro is trimmed by two measures, the "got a wife in Chino" verse is cut, the Brent solo is trimmed, and the Jer solo is edited. The energy carries into Minglewood (New York girls/T for New York City), and the rest is average '80. The 2nd solo of Passenger is entertaining, though. Deal throws all 52 into the air as everybody starts button mashing - which can work, in Deaddom.
Third Set. The end of Truckin' has hints of a Nobody's Jam. The bouncy Scarlet is better, and Garcia's high-lonesome solos in Fire are nice, but the golden happens after the generic Wharf Rat, with a full stop coming into a sweet Miracle. They are dancing right on the dime's edge, into a Bertha that's great in this late spot (and rare). The drummers are on fire, with little slips and 16th fills. Brent's the key on a smoker Johnny B. Goode. The extra sumthin' again comes from the drummers on Casey Jones.
1st Set: B-
2nd Set: C+
3rd Set: B-
Overall = 3¼ stars
The Race is On - As good as the 25th
I've Been All Around this World - best version of the 12
Greatest Story Ever Told - x factor
Friend of the Devil - complete version of well-known FotD
I Need a Miracle - on dime's edge
Bertha - great in this rare spot; check the drummers
Johnny B. Goode - scope Brent
SOURCES: The wise_miller_101293 is the Jim Wise AUD, re-pitched. It has some AUD chatter & noise but also has the best image and freq range. @4:03 in Drums there is a few sec tape flip. This is covered best by the friend_116196, which also has the first couple secs of Minglewood and less AUD chatter. Monkey & the Engineer is on Reckoning and an edited Friend of the Devil is on Dead Set.
Subject: Great show.

Subject: red velvet acoustic
Subject: Super clear and crisp
The acoustic set even sounds spectacular. To me sometimes aud recordings of acoustic sets fall a little short on delivering. This one definitely does that.
Way to go Mr. Wise!
